Inside the capsule this time there will be only one passenger – the Skywalker dummy.

Blue Origin personnel will play the role of astronauts today – people will climb the launch tower, enter the capsule, sit in their seats, wear seat belts and check communications with the Mission Control Center. The ground team will prepare the capsule for flight and then close its hatch. After that, the “astronauts” will leave shortly before launch.
